HYPETRAK Mix: INSTRUMENTAL HIP HOP IS DEAD – KAYTRANADA

Today we proudly present the latest HYPETRAK Mix by none other than Kaytranada. The Montreal native

Today we proudly present the latest HYPETRAK Mix by none other than Kaytranada. The Montreal native has compiled an intriguing selection of hard-hitting unreleased production. Much closer to Dilla’s Donuts than a DJ mix, this is essentially a raw beat tape — in the purest form there is.

How did you approach this mix? What was the idea behind it?
No ideas, just a mix of my old hip-hop beats.

2013 was a successful year for you. What was your personal highlight?
My first tour in Europe in May, was definitely my highlight of the year.

What’s your main goal for 2014?
I wish that my success will continue for 2014.

Favorite song and album this year?
Happy – Pharrell / 7 Days of Funk, but I didn’t think music was very good this year.
